The room was clean...

The W is located in downtown Minneapolis and has a great location to visit all the city has to offer. The hotel is well kept and the service was good. We have stayed at other hotels in Minneapolis and this will now be our go to location when visiting the city.

Came here on business. Upon walking in to check into the hotel, I noticed the dark club like atmosphere. I have been to the W hotel in Hollywood and loved the atmosphere. This W hotel was far different. I walk down a dark hallway to 2 reception desks. One for VIP and one for standard check-in. I check in and...

Love this hotel, great location, comfy beds, beautiful building. Favorite hotel in Minneapolis. Valet parking is steep but there is a ramp right around the corner that is $5 each weekend day. Great place to stay and catch some jazz at the Dakota and/or Minnesota Orchestra at Orchestra Hall. Ample awesome restaurants and bars nearby.

Having stayed in a few W properties before we have no issue in returning to them. While we had some issues leading up to the stay, the stay itself and the service recovery was good. Ironically parking was cheaper here than at the Westin.

“All rooms have a lot of natural light, not all have a "view", you should request a view of the downtown if that's what you want.”
